A Lonely Walkway
Poem By Khairul Ahsan
Many passers-by traverse this walkway
Individually or in groups, everyday
In their morning and afternoon strolls,
Some do so even when the evening falls.
Many devout followers of faith everyday
Walk this path as it falls on their way
To the Masjid, where they prostrate and pray
Rain or shine, five times a day.
The path on the right and the canal on the left
Both at past midday looked quite bereft
Just at that time, while I was walking alone
I captured the sight, in the camera of my cellphone.
